Yamaha has partnered with Sonic Reality and Ocean Way Recording to bring new drum kit sounds to the MOTIF XS line of Yamaha music production workstations and the DTXTREME III electronic drums. The Motif sounds will be available at www.motifator.com and the DTXTREME III collections will be available for download and purchase at www.dtxperience.com Websites run by Keyfax New Media.

Ocean Way Drums by Sonic Reality is a top drum software plug-in, winning Electronic Musician’s “Editor's Choice” award for best sample-based plug-in of 2008. Grammy Award-winning engineer/producers Allen Sides and Steven Miller recorded and mixed the collection in Ocean Way’s legendary Studio B in Los Angeles, site of classic recordings by Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole, along with contemporary artists Radiohead, Green Day, Kanye West and Eric Clapton.

The company sampled 19 drum kits in Studio B with top-of-the-line mics and audiophile-quality recording equipment.

The new sounds for the DTXTREME III drum sets include the Ocean Way Drums DTXPANSION Kit 10m; the Motif collection includes the Ocean Way Drums XSpand Your World Kit 10m. Top drum and Motif programmer David Polich created this Medium Dry to Ambient Mix collection—available as a free download—specifically for each instrument.

The "Best of Both Worlds—Hardware and Software United" promotion provides all DTXREME III and MOTIF XS users with a special Download Card coupon to buy the Ocean Way Drums DL Edition plug-in or the Drum Masters/Infinite Player plug-in at a special discount from www.downloadablesoundz.com. A free trial version of both software plug-ins is available from the user area of www.sonicreality.com.

KeyFax New Media also offers an added bonus download for the Motif XS that includes 256 Arpeggios taken from the KeyFax Library of MIDI files, which have been converted into Motif XS Arpeggio format.

Another free download available as part of the Motif XS promotion is Sonic Reality’s Drum Masters XSpand Your World 2 Style Kits, which includes multi-sampled recordings of several drum sets.
